I recently received an email from a subscriber asking about prostate cancer. Theodore B. asked: “My PSA level is 8.4 and the rectal exam was fine. But last year my PSA level was 5.8. How can I lower my PSA? And if I am able to lower it, do I still have to worry about having prostate cancer?”
Theodore, the answer to your question is a bit complicated. But hang with me and you’ll know how to handle the PSA, prostate cancer, and other prostate problems.
In my experience working with Dr. Robert Rowen and Dr. Frank Shallenberger, it’s become clear that the PSA test has two valuable uses. The first is for measuring inflammation. Dr. Rowen, editor of Second Opinion, says that while the PSA test is not directly related to cancer, it is a marker of inflammation.
“But inflammation is, in itself, a major problem.” Rowen says. “Inflammation leads to organ damage. In the prostate, inflammation will lead to enlargement, urinary obstruction, and a host of male sexual difficulties. These can include erectile dysfunction, loss of libido, orgasmic difficulties, etc. And, inflammation is the root of cancer. Inflammation is synonymous with cellular damage. Constant ongoing damage can lead to degeneration and cancer.”
So a higher PSA is definitely a concern. But the bigger concern is the rapid rise in your PSA. Dr. Shallenberger says in the upcoming December issue of Real Cures that you should get a PSA test every year. “This will let you plot out your PSA velocity. PSA velocity refers to how fast the PSA rises over time. If you see your velocity going up at a rate greater than 0.15 ng/ml over three consecutive years, you need to take action immediately.” Your score has risen dramatically in just one year. While it doesn’t necessarily diagnose cancer, it could. And it’s clear your risk is very high. So you need to take immediate action.
The action both doctors recommend does not include conventional treatments. Dr. Shallenberger says alternative treatments can easily cure most cases of prostate cancer. You can get all the details on his website (subscribers to his newsletter have unlimited access to his archives). But here’s what he recommends in a nutshell:
First, see a doctor who has found success treating prostate cancer with alternative therapies. You can find doctors at www.acam.org. If you have confirmed prostate cancer, two of the treatments they may use include Proton Beam Therapy and insulin potentiation therapy (IPT).
Proton Beam Therapy is similar to traditional radiation therapy with a big difference. Dr. Shallenberger says, “Traditional radiation therapy is like shooting with a shotgun. It destroys the cancer, but at the same time damages any healthy tissues and organs within close proximity. Conversely, with Proton Beam Therapy this isn’t the case. Instead of hitting everything in its path, the beam can be calibrated to focus into one pinpointed beam and deliver maximum radiation to the tumor, often to within a fraction of a millimeter!
In fact, proton beam therapy is so accurate that it’s used to treat tumors of the eye without damaging the optical nerves!” IPT, on the other hand, is essentially low-dose chemotherapy. IPT treats many different types of cancer. But prostate cancer responds especially well, particularly when you begin treatment in the early stages. You can find out more about both of these treatments on the aforementioned websites, and with a simple Google search of the Internet.
If you don’t have a cancer diagnosis, your alternative doctor may not use either of these treatments. He can guide you toward the treatment you need. This will likely include a combination of nutrients. I’ll show you several of these in next week’s Nutrient Insider. Don’t miss it, as it will show you how to lower your PSA naturally.
